The online application date for 2018 will commence from 21st April 2018 and the last date is 25th April. The eligibility criteria for application of SSC CGL is bachelors degree or graduate degree from any recognized university. Aspirants who have a degree from distance education from IGNOU recognized universities are also eligible. The age limit will be calculated on 1st August every year. But there is age relaxation for SC/ST (5 years), OBC (3 years), Physically Handicapped (10 years), SC/ST with Physical disability (15years) and OBC with Physical disability (13 years).
Since you are in BTech second year, you will be quite eligible when it comes to age but when it comes to education eligibility, you can apply for the exam but you will not eligible after completing all the tiers, because you will not be able to produce a provisional certificate by 2019 (which is the completion of tier 4 exam of SSC CGL 2018 exam).
Note: You cannot appear or clear all tiers at once. Each tier exam is conducted in various dates throughout the calendar year. It is better that you apply for SSC CGL in next academic year i.e, BTech 3rd year.
